Because of its very high mineral content the hot spring water has more than 20 kinds of health care functions. Therefore a hot spring is also called ‘holy water’.
But what is a hot spring? It is produced be the emergence of geothermal heated groundwater. So, the heat of the Earth’s mantle is heating the water as long as the water is getting deeply enough into the crust. It will become warm then when it’s getting in contact with the hot rocks. The Yue Wen Quan SPA is one of those places where the earth heats the water, which is coming out then.
